We’re already more than halfway through 2022. Chances are, with the recent climate, you’ve been spending more time at home than ever before.
Do you love the space you’ve created, or are you itching for a little inspiration?
If it’s the latter, there are plenty of home design ideas that can help! The good news? Most are low-budget, low-commitment, and easy enough to tackle over a weekend.
Today, we’re exploring 10 fun ideas that can transform your space into one you adore. We’ll also share a few ways that our painting professionals can help!
1. Add Some Green
You already know that houseplants add vibrancy and a pop of color to any living area. However, did you also know that they’re scientifically proven to boost your brainpower?
It’s true! According to one study, indoor plants can improve productivity and concentration by up to 15%! If you’ve been looking for a simple and quick way to brighten up your sunroom, home office, or living room, why not add a few potted plants to the scene?
Worried that they won’t survive with your track record? Don’t sweat it. Here’s a list of 12 houseplants that practically anyone can grow.
2. Give Your Cabinets a Makeover
Dreaming of a brand-new kitchen? As you prepare more meals at home, you might begin staring at your cabinets, suddenly aware of how dated or dull they look.
While new cabinets are exciting, they’re not exactly low-cost. Instead of swapping your existing cabinets out for new ones, why not give them a fresh coat of paint? Often, this is all that’s needed to create a look you love.
Instead of tackling this job yourself, give our team a call and let us take the reins for you! Cabinet painting is one of our specialties, and we know just how to make your kitchen shine.
3. Add Window Treatments
Stark, bare windows can be gorgeous and deliver a ton of natural light. Unfortunately, they don’t always deliver the privacy you need to live comfortably in your home.
This is where gorgeous window treatments come in.
Today, you can find a ton of different styles to meet any personal aesthetic. Will you go with streamlined blinds, elaborate Roman shades, or bohemian-style curtains? There’s no right or wrong answer, so let your own style be your guide.
4. Decorate Your Entryway
The entryway is a visitor’s first impression of your home. Even if you don’t have a designated foyer, there’s usually a space right beyond the front door that serves as a general welcome spot.
If you have such a nook, add a sleek console table to add instant warmth! Flank each side of the table with skinny lamps and you’ll impress right out of the gate.
5. Change Out Your Throw Pillows
Throw pillows make almost any space cozy and comfortable. However, for such a small accessory, they can be surprisingly pricey! Thankfully, once you invest in the pillow forms once, all you have to do is change out the covers.
When spring rolls around, opt for bright and sunny pastels to welcome the season. Then, you can go a little darker when the temperatures start to drop. There are also lots of holiday-inspired varieties to help you usher in each season!
6. Paint a Statement Wall
Statement walls are a major design trend, and for good reason.
Painting a single wall in your room adds contrast and visual interest. It also keeps a small space from feeling too saturated with color.
This year, design experts are urging homeowners to get a little bolder with their choices, choosing rich, dark tones over the light hues that have dominated to date.
Again, we’re here to help you mark this one off your to-do list. While you might feel up to the challenge of a DIY paint job, it’s far easier to trust this step to the pros.
Our interior painting services span walls and ceilings, trim work, accent walls, and even garage floors. We can also help you prepare the space by removing wallpaper, repairing drywall, and getting rid of that frustrating popcorn ceiling!
7. Add Some Artwork
You don’t have to break the bank by investing in a collection of original oil portraits. After all, art is meant to be eclectic and curated, not stuffy.
As long as you look for pieces that reflect your style and personality, you can find eye-catching scores at the local thrift store or neighborhood swaps! Take your time and buy pieces that speak to you, and then display them proudly throughout your home.
As you do, pay special attention to oft-neglected spaces. From tiny hall baths to the man cave, there are plenty of walls to cover.
8. Stain the Deck
Are you looking forward to spending lots of time in the backyard this summer? Make it a place you want to enjoy by giving your back deck a little makeover!
A fresh coat of stain can make a world of difference, here. If weather or time have taken their toll on yours, our team can make them look as good as new!
We offer affordable deck and fence staining services that include power washing, sanding, and staining. Not only will your deck look great in the months ahead, but it will stay that way for years to come.
9. Reupholster a Favorite Piece
Is your beloved armchair looking a little shabby? What about that hand-me-down antique rocker that’s been stored in the attic since you moved?
Upholstery services aren’t always inexpensive, but if you stick to one or two favorite pieces, it’s an investment that’s well worth it. Have fun choosing a fabric you love, and you’ll get so much more use out of the furniture.
10. Add a Garage Floor Epoxy
When you think about updating your home, you might not put too much thought into what goes on the garage floor. However, a garage floor epoxy is a touch that you have to see to believe.
This recent trend gives your garage major style. Plus, it also protects the floor from all the spills and messes that usually happen in this space. This also happens to be one of our specialties, so let us help you beautify your work area!
